Cattle egret Ardeola ibis IMG 7376 - When the time comes to find a mate, Australian cattle egrets put on their best dress, and their bland white plumage becomes enhanced with a golden glow. This bird was photographed at the botanic gardens in the Queensland city of Bundaberg where a large colony of these waterbirds have set up home.
